I have always been a fan of simple and comfort food recipes. you may notice in my blog and especially the rice, curry, sambar, rasam and dal section and the types of varieties posted in it. yet i feel it is incomplete and there are so many types of recipes to cover. for instance, i have posted the dal fry, dal makhani recipe, yet this recipe which is similar to any of this dal, is completely different in taste and procedure. firstly, the set of lentils used in this is a unique combination. basically, it is either 5 types of dal or a combination of 2 dal in a 1:1 ratio. but this is very unique as 3 types of dal are used to make this a comfort dal. also, the set of spices used is minimal with just chilli powder and turmeric, thus making a simple dal recipe. it is generally severed with specially prepared jeera rice which i have posted with this post. do try this combo and certainly leave feedback about it.

Butter Dal Fry Recipe furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the Butter Dal Fry Recipe. firstly, in this, i have used 3 types of lentils which is ideal for this type of butter dal recipe. however, you may experiment or even alter the combination by adding masoor dal or even urad dal to make it more creamy and tasty. secondly, this dal is generally made in a medium consistency and has to be in flowing consistency. do not make it with thick consistency as it may lose its taste and also the flavour. lastly, the perfect combo meal for this dal recipe is jeera rice or any type of rice like pulao or even fried rice. but if you wish, you can also serve this dal with different types of roti, naan and paratha’s.
